Granny flat designs don’t have to look like they’ve come straight out of a box. Kit granny flats or prefab granny flats can leave much to be desired, with generic features that often don’t match the aesthetic of your existing home.
When choosing a granny flat design, it’s important that it flows seamlessly with the rest of your property. That’s why Lifestyle Granny Flats, Queensland’s premiere granny flat builder, specialises in custom granny flats that are both architecturally unique and modern. Our range is incredibly energy efficient, built with high-quality materials and fully customisable to suit your needs. We’ve handpicked a few of our favourite granny flat designs to showcase in this article.
The Contempo is one of our most popular granny flat designs! It combines a sleek, modern appearance with superb functionality, and comes in a one or two-bedroom layout. The Contempo is a fantastic option for those with limited space for building, but who do not want to skimp on life’s little luxuries! The dining room opens out onto a lovely outdoor living area, ideal for entertaining guests. The front patio can also fit a small table and chairs for sipping coffee in the morning! The mixed materials used in The Contempo’s architectural design provide it with a refreshing modern look suited for many different Queensland properties.
The Investor series is named so because it has the potential to add significant value to your existing home. With all the features of a small house, The Investor provides homeowners with the opportunity to rent their granny flat out as a separate dwelling. Its showstopping characteristics include a separate W/C to the bathroom, plenty of storage space, a clothesline and a laundry. The design is spacious, practical and low maintenance.
The Hampton epitomises traditional Queenslander chic with a Hamptons twist. This granny flat design perfectly compliments properties with Queenslander features and is ideal for those looking for classic architectural elements. With french doors that open out from the dining room onto an outdoor living area and a verandah which wraps around two sides of the granny flat, a light-filled and airy space is created. The Hampton also boasts a large kitchen with an island bench and fully customisable robes in each bedroom. It’s a timeless design for heritage Queensland properties.
The Metro is our most spacious granny flat design, making it suitable for a wide variety of uses, including a second home for adult children or elderly parents, or a luxurious guest retreat. The open plan living, dining and kitchen area make entertaining a delight, as do the optional outdoor decks. This granny flat design can be built with either two rooms and a singular deck, or one master bedroom and three spacious decks for the ultimate outdoor living experience. Those who love to have a few friends around for a meal and drinks in the warm Queensland climate will be delighted with the Metro, our best granny flat for socialites!
